<B>Hugh Hefner – September 28</B>

The formidable <i>Playboy</i> founder passed away peacefully at home in his beloved Playboy Mansion in LA, aged 91.

Playboy Enterprises, Inc. announced the sad news, confirming that the American icon had died from natural causes and had been surrounded by his loved ones.

Hugh is survived by his third wife, Crystal Harris, and his four children: Christie, who served as CEO of Playboy Enterprise for more than 20 years; David, Marston and Cooper, 26, who currently serves as Chief Creative Officer at the company.

The icon's youngest son, who was regularly pictured with his father at his annual parties, said Hugh would be "missed by many".

He paid tribute to his father's "exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom".

Hugh launched <i>Playboy</i> in 1953 from his kitchen, and it went on to become the top-selling men's magazine in the world: at its peak, readers snapped up seven million copies a month.
